Revelation

Some Notes

Teacher and Webmaster advice

From the teacher -

This study on Revelation is likely to be unlike any other you have read. 

  • First, it was originally done in Microsoft PowerPoint.  This is a slide show, with notes.  The notes contain the meat of the matter.  Because of that, you will find yourself using your "back" button on the browser to get back here.  You might want to bookmark this site instead.
  • Next, as unbelievable as it sounds, this study presents all the major views of the Book of Revelation.  It will probably surprise you to find this, but there are other views besides Hal Lindsey's. 
  • Even more unbelievable:  this study does not trumpet one over the others.
  • Why?  The author had the benefit of the library at Pacific Christian College (now Hope International University) and its superb collection of books on this subject.  In that library are books that argue fiercely for their particular view.  So many minds, so many differing points of view - they are simply presented here for your use.
  • Because of that approach, however, you will also note that there are certain similarities in these views - when proper methods of interpretation are applied.

If you are looking for your particular view, please don't bother with this section.  Also, please do not write the webmaster about the content of this.  It is not our intention to conduct a debate;  rather, to provide a resource to those who might need it.

The first three lessons in this study were not in PowerPoint, but were given to introduce the author and the concepts of prophecy.

From the webmaster -

One word of warning: the PowerPoint sections of this series do not work well in Firefox.  Sorry, but this is one for which you will need Internet Explorer.

How does this work?  Simple enough:

1.    The presentations shown in the navigation bar (starting with "Vision") are created by PowerPoint.  The style is so unique that only Internet Explorer, which has the code for this, can display them properly.  (Open standards, from Microsoft).  You can access them with Firefox, Safari, Netscape and Chrome - but they display black screens (I've tried it.)

2.  Since some of you will want to use the presentation materials, we've provided some downloads for you.  Each lesson (starting with "Vision") has the following downloads available:

The PowerPoint presentation itself, in PowerPoint 2007 format (.pptx).  Note:  Weirdly enough, Internet Explorer tries to open the PowerPoint presentations in Open XML - which doesn't work.  If you want to use the PowerPoint presentations, open this page in Firefox, Safari or Chrome.
